7de Laan: Marietjie is looking for ‘n man wat sy man kan staan

OMW! I can’t believe I’m even writing this, but I’m loving Marietjie’s wedding story.

The eventual wedding will be such a let down, I imagine.

Poor Wilhelm – the bridegroom if you were wondering who the side-kick who’s always eating is!

I admit I first thought he was her son.

Anyway looks like Marietjie met her match in Diederick of all people. She apparently admires men who stand up to her.

Well, after her ridiculous wedding themes and impossible demands, even a saint would have lost their cool.

But in tonight’s episode of 7de Laan she went as meek as a lamb and quoted the Afrikaans poet Jan FE Cilliers with admiration for Diederick and gave over all control of the wedding plans to him.


Ek hou van ‘n man wat sy man kan staan.
Ek hou van ‘n man wat ‘n slag kan slaan.
‘n Oog wat nie wyk, wat ‘n bars kan kyk.
En ‘n wil wat so vas soos ‘n klipsteen slaan!

Me too, Marietjie. Me too 😉
